Command-line interfaces are often preferred by more advanced computer users, as they often provide a more concise and powerful means to control a program or operating system. Compared with a graphical user interface, a command line requires fewer system resources to implement. Since options to commands are given in a few characters in each command line, an experienced user finds the options easier to access. A command-line history can be kept, allowing review or repetition of commands. A command-line system may require paper or online manuals for the user’s reference, although often a «help» option provides a concise review of the options of a command.

The command-line environment may not provide the graphical enhancements such as different fonts or extended edit windows found in a GUI. It may be difficult for a new user to become familiar with all the commands and options available, compared with the drop-down menus of a graphical user interface, without repeated reference to manuals. Although the term ‘shell’ is often used to describe a command-line interpreter, strictly speaking a ‘shell’ can be any program that constitutes the user-interface, including fully graphically oriented ones. For example, the default Windows GUI is a shell program named EXPLORER. EXE line in the WIN. These programs are shells, but not CLIs. Most operating systems support a means to pass additional information to a program when it is launched.

When a program is launched from an OS command line shell, additional text provided along with the program name is passed to the launched program. After launch, a program may provide an operator with an independent means to enter commands in the form of text. Command lines from client processes may be redirected to a CLI program by one of these methods. Some applications support only a CLI, presenting a CLI prompt to the user and acting upon command lines as they are entered. Other programs support both a CLI and a GUI. In other cases, a program may provide a CLI as an optional alternative to its GUI. CLIs and GUIs often support different functionality.

CLI, whereas the MATLAB GUI exposes only a subset of features. Early computer systems often used teleprinter machines as the means of interaction with a human operator. The computer became one end of the human-to-human teleprinter model. So instead of a human communicating with another human over a teleprinter, a human communicated with a computer. These were typically used to interface an organization’s new PC’s with their existing mini- or mainframe computers, or to connect PC to PC. 1977 as a replacement for the V6 shell. Although it is used as an interactive command interpreter, it was also intended as a scripting language and contains most of the features that are commonly considered to produce structured programs.

GET and POST, to pipe the file email. For detailed command line syntax and examples; allows you to change one variable or string to another. CLIs are often used by programmers and system administrators, expand the command line before executing the specified command, type SET without parameters to display the current environment variables.

Windows that offer a Unix-like CLI. CLIs are also used by systems with insufficient resources to support a graphical user interface. CLIs are often used by programmers and system administrators, in engineering and scientific environments, and by technically advanced personal computer users. Command — provided by the client. Internal — recognized and processed by the command line interpreter itself and not dependent upon any external executable file. Included — A separate executable file generally considered part of the operating environment and always included with the OS. External — External executable files not part of the basic OS, but added by other parties for specific purposes and applications.

1 paramN — Optional parameters provided by the client. The format and meaning of the parameters depends upon the command issued. These rules also dictate how a user navigates through the system of commands. Two different CLIs may agree on either syntax or semantics, but it is only when they agree on both that they can be considered sufficiently similar to allow users to use both CLIs without needing to learn anything, as well as to enable re-use of scripts. Advanced CLIs will validate, interpret and parameter-expand the command line before executing the specified command, and optionally capture or redirect its output.

Unlike a button or menu item in a GUI, a command line is typically self-documenting, stating exactly what the user wants done. These advantages mean that a user must figure out a complex command or series of commands only once, because they can be saved, to be used again. This will overwrite the file. The directories in the path variable are searched in the order they are given. By re-ordering the path, one can run e.

EXE, when the default is the opposite. Renaming of the executables also works: people often rename their favourite editor to EDIT, for example. The command line allows one to restrict available commands, such as access to advanced internal commands. Often, shareware programs will limit the range of commands, including printing a command ‘your administrator has disabled running batch files’ from the prompt.

At this point, commands from the system mode may not be accessible and the user exits the interface mode and enters the system mode.
